The 2014 nuclear negotiations marked one of the most contentious issues in Iran’s domestic politics and foreign affairs alike. The partial diplomatic headways; two failures to meet the extended nuclear deadlines, and the possibility of the historic comprehensive nuclear deal highlighted progress and setbacks with respect to the nuclear negotiations for both the Islamic Republic and the six world powers known as the P5+1 (China, France, Germany, Russia, the United Kingdom, and the United States).
At the beginning of the year, Iran and the P5+1 began the process of implementing the Joint Plan of Action, which was proposed by Iran’s foreign minister, Javad Zarif. Parallel with the nuclear negotiations between the P5+1 and Iran, the IAEA began its frequent inspection and monitoring of the Iranian nuclear program in order to ensure that Tehran was complying with the November 11 framework agreement.
The first IAEA report revealed that Iran was complying with some of the articles of the provisional nuclear deal. The Islamic Republic ceased enriching Uranium at the high level, 20 percent, which is a technical step away from developing weapons-grade Uranium. Tehran stopped major activities at the Arak heavy water and Plutonium reactor. Iran began diluting, and converted its highly enriched Uranium, continuing its nuclear research and development within the framework of the interim nuclear deal. Iran promised to build a plant which would convert the newly 5% enriched Uranium into an oxide, which cannot be utilized for further enrichment. In addition, according to the initial IAEA report, Iran provided “additional information and explanations,” that Tehran has conducted tests on explosive detonators for “a civilian application.”
